Contains 65g/L residual sugar, less than the Blandy’s 2008 Verdelho released in 2019. It is clear deep amber in hue. The nose is quite striking, grabbing you with both hands and bringing dried honey, orange zest, Seville orange marmalade and antique furniture polish, all with fine delineation. The palate is tangy from start to finish, featuring enticing marmalade and desiccated orange peel notes. But what I really admire is the crescendo of spiciness on the finish; the mouth feels "alive" two minutes after this Verdelho has exited, tingling with the wake of pepperiness. Superb. There were 2,000 50cl bottles produced.
